Trompe l’oeil or “Fools the Eye”.

Trompe l’oeil was originally used as an artistic term and literally translates from the French to mean “fools the eye”. As painting this meant photo-like drawings with proper sizing and a great amount of detail, in fashion terms it refers to something which appears to have detailing, such as a belt, a tie or a complete garment, but is actually just drawn on, knitted in or printed on.
